Webinar Replay

Screen Shot 2015-01-16 at 10.51.19

Last night I hosted a webinar called "Maintaining A Healthy Weight Without Restriction, Deprivation or Constant Exercise". It is hands down the most well received thing I have ever done. So many people emailed me saying how helpful it was. If you missed it first time around, or want to watch it again, here is a replay of it: In the webinar I reference an online calorie calculator that you can see here. I have now opened up my practice again to new clients (I only have two intakes a year). If you like the information from this webinar and would like to arrange a free initial chat … [Read more...]

Maintaining A Health Weight

Garfield Scales

It’s that time of the year again and resolutions have possibly been made. You want to make 2015 your year. You’re going to lose some weight. You’re going to exercise more often. You’re going to eat healthier. You’re going to get a body that at least vaguely resembles all those people you see in the magazines and on TV. And how do people go about losing weight? Typically through some form of deprivation. They cut down on calories, cut out a particular macronutrient (like fat or carbohydrates), or cut out things like sugar or booze. Maybe they even start with some form of juice fast or … [Read more...]

A Christmas Message

Christmas Cake

I wanted to send out this quick Christmas message. First off I want to say a huge thank you for taking the time to read any of my emails, my Facebook posts, my blog articles, watch any of my videos, or if you’ve worked with me one on one or through any of my online programs. I feel so lucky to be able to wake up and do what I do every day; I thoroughly love my job. Having people follow my advice and trust my opinion is not a responsibility I take lightly. I also know how important your time is and to be spending some of that time with me means it is not something I want to … [Read more...]

Body Confidence

body confidence

I have two intakes of clients per year. At the start of and the middle of the year I take on between 20 and 25 people to work with one-on-one. I work with these clients for a 5-month period, only choosing people who are already committed to making changes and will see it through. While 5 months can seem like a long time, it really flies by. And as these clients discover, it’s definitely worth it. The majority of clients who come to see me these days do so because they want help with that messy business of how they feel about their body and their relationship with food. Sure, they normally … [Read more...]

Do You Feel Judged When You Eat?

Nobody-can-make-you-feel-inferior-without-your-consent 7 Health

Before setting up as a nutritionist I had a regular job. I worked for local government, as a housing benefits officer. I would make decisions on how much the unemployed or low-income earners would be paid to help with their rent. It was something I fell into when I first moved from Sydney to London but I ended up doing it for 7 years. Despite definitely not being ‘my calling’, it was really flexible and allowed me to study nutrition and subsequently set up my own company. I remember when I worked in the job just how much I used to eat. Every day I would be taking in mountains of food and … [Read more...]

Lessons From Traditional Diets

Bush Tucker Man 7 Health

I remember as a kid watching a show called the Bush Tucker Man. He was kind of like the Australian equivalent of Bear Grylls, but some 20 years his predecessor. Each show would have him walking around different parts of Australia and talking about the area. These would always be remote places cut off from civilisation and he’d be living off the land while doing so. Making canoes out of tree bark, and eating grubs, bugs, berries and whatever food was local to the area. As a kid I loved the show and found it fascinating.  Often he would meet up with people from different tribes and they’d … [Read more...]
